The total mileage was less today, just 44 miles, but it took all day. And Maria designated today as Western Day, so we all trotted out our horsey clothes, some a little more horsey than others. First stop was Old Town San Diego. Great mix of old Victorians and Spanish style structures. Visited the Mormon Battalion Museum, and Bill became a Mormon Battalion Volunteer. (If you never heard of the Mormon Battalion, like me, look it up, very interesting.)
Great Mexican lunch,,,,, After lunch, we drove up to the Mt. Soledad War Memorial for fallen veterans. Then a visit to Point Loma Lighthouse, forgot to take any pictures, the vistas were so vast, I forgot to even take the camera out. Finished the day off at a BBQ hosted by Ernie Roeder’s daughter, Cindy, and her husband, Jim, who live here in San Diego. We had a little toast, “Here’s to you, Lucy”. You Model T folks know who we mean, don’t you?
We even had a little song fest. Ed played his guitar and we sang along. So we only covered 44 miles, but we sure covered a lot of bases today. And tomorrow, we all become swabbies.
